Register for the Talent Pool to help us match your skills and interests to the right volunteer assignment
Australians who are ready to share their skills and experience with partner organisations are invited to join our Talent Pool or to sign up for our Assignment Alert newsletter.
Register for the Talent Pool to make a head start on your application and let our recruiters know you’re ready to volunteer. While there you can choose different assignment preferences, such as the countries you'd like to support, the length of the assignment, and whether you'd like to volunteer remotely, in-country, or both!
We review applicants in the talent pool on a regular basis. If it seems like you’re a good match for an upcoming assignment, we may get in touch before the role is advertised more broadly
"My professional experience is quite diverse, so the Talent Pool gave me an opportunity to show this in its best light."
Clementine Barnes, remote volunteer with Chuuk Women's Council
How it works
- Candidates create an account in the Australian Volunteer Portal and register for the Talent Pool, which includes submitting your resume and an online video.
- Before advertising new assignments, our recruiters search the Talent Pool looking for suitable candidates with the right skills, qualifications and experience.
- If a potential match is found, the candidate and partner organisation are given an opportunity to meet to find out if they’re a good fit.
- Candidates regularly check-in via the portal and keep their details up-to-date to ensure our recruiters have the latest information.
Registering for the Talent Pool does not guarantee you a volunteer assignment.
“The role has been a perfect match with my skills and the partner’s requirements... The process really helped match my skills with a great organisation.”
Andrew Boyle, remote volunteer with Yayasan Solemen Indonesia
